Skin Cancer checks

 

The PCA take the matter of skin care and
the dangers of long term sun exposure very seriously.
We are working closely together to raise awareness
of the dangers, screening players and umpires to
ensure that any signs are detected and treated early.

We support county squads with group screenings.

Current and former players should contact Ali Prosser in the first instance.
